Detailed route description and map

Beinn a' Chlachair, Geal Charn & Creag Pitridh from Loch Laggan

Other routes and challenges

The approach above - using the Allt Coire Pitridh path - is still the most convenient if climbing Geal Charn alone.

The mountain could be traversed from lonely Loch Pattack, though the Allt Cam would need to be forded for the approach to Loch a' Bheilaich Leamhain.
